Baby Dinosaurs Neighbourhood Window Hunt… SPOT THE DINOSAURS….Spreading a little joy while the children aren’t at school 🌟

Let’s help our children to get creative, draw a picture of our Baby Dinosaurs. Pop it in your window so that friends can see it. Then get activate and go on a Baby Dinosaurs hunt to see more. The more people that join in the better and if you give us your location, we will create a dinosaur hunt map in your area.

Declutter while in isolation

Why not have that much needed clear out, while at home. We all have tones of our children’s treasures so why not make some extra pocket money for it. One stall holder at our last market made £283 PROFIT. Not bad for an 1.5 hours.

Our Selling Tips
Here are some selling tips for you to prepare  for our QUALITY MARKETS. If you would like to join us, register to our waiting list to secure your spot HERE.  

We encourage sellers to think about what price you would like to get for your items. Labelling items is a good way of encouraging customers to look at your stall. If you are unsure about how much to charge for something, look at what it is full price now and come to a figure you feel comfortable with.

Due from our experience from our last markets. Stall holders that price their items low and in bundles generally have more success. As it brings buyers to your stall and when your stall looks busy, this attracts even more shoppers, to see what you have to offer. Making you the larger profit in the long run and clearing out more items.

Making posters for large amounts of clothes to go on a rail, is also a good idea ( if you need help, I can print off what you like. Just let me know in plenty of time) However try not to over fill your rails. Having clothes on the rails in age order is also a good way of selling.

Display your items clearly and don’t clutter on or around your table, this always welcomes customers to your stall, if they can see what you have. Keep some items underneath your table to fill in gaps.

You can display goods in bundles using ribbon or clear sandwich bags and tags.

Buyers know what they are looking for, so being prepared is key to selling more. You can display clothing in boxes with signs (labelling bulk buys, however this sometimes puts buyers off as they don’t want to rummage).

Have a table cloth on your table, again make your stall more inviting (ensure it’s off the floor, so it’s not a trip hazard) Taking pride in your stall, makes it more appealing to buyers. So using bunting or anything decorative, makes your stall more welcoming.

Don’t display any broken or stained items, this puts customer off and they will look else where. Ensure everything you are selling is clean. (Including prams, outside toys).

Please bring at least a £10 float.

In my experience, sitting down at a stall doesn’t entice customers attention, asking them questions like “what age are they looking for” “is it a girl or a boy” just questions to build relationships with you customers, makes them more comfortable to buy things and invest in your products.
Don’t try to sell everything you have in one go, sort out your items and only bring those that suit the current and next season.

Washing clothing before the market increased buyers attention as they smell fresh and more attractive.

Only sell what you would like to be sold. Baby Dinosaurs has an outstanding reputation for QUALITY ITEMS, so please help us continue our good work and please do not bring anything that does not meet our standards.

Making a market at home

Doncaster Mumbler was joining Baby Dinosaurs – Kids Market UK at their pre-loved sale tomorrow at Lakeside Village. Due to the ongoing Corona Virus measures, the kids market is cancelled, however we had designed a quiz sheet for children to do at the event.

If you can’t get to the event, create the event at home! Why not set up a shop with the kids, create pricing labels, get some pennies out and count them? Download a quiz sheet here that will give you a few moments of peace and quiet – hopefully 🤞. I have included the Twinkl Parents offer code on here to print out some price tags too. https://doncaster.mumbler.co.uk/turn-your-house-in-to-a-sh…/

Doncaster Mumbler is run by a local lady called Caroline. A mum of 2 Mini Mumblers, she has a passion for bringing together the Doncaster parenting community.  Caroline loves collecting and sharing the vast knowledge we have of our amazing area, to help make all of our busy lives that little bit easier! Check our her website here for more information to suit all your needs.
